(Linde)

Informação:
Dennis Linde compôs Burning Love para Elvis, que gravou a canção nos estúdios de Hollywood da RCA em 28 de março de 1972. Linde tocou guitarra na gravação. Burning Love atingiu a 2ª posição durante a sua estadia de 15 semanas na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard. Foi a canção My Ding-A-Ling de Chuck Berry que evitou que Elvis tivesse mais um disco número um. Burning Love alcançou a 9ª posição na tabela Easy-Listening. Em 27 de outubro de 1972, a RIAA certificou o disco como vendendo um milhão de exemplares. Uma atuação ao vivo de abril de 1972 de Burning Love foi mostrada no documentário Elvis On Tour. Elvis também a cantou no seu especial televisivo de 1973, Elvis, Aloha From Hawaii. Alguns reportaram que Elvis talvez possa ter gravado uma sequela de Burning Love, intitulada Burning Love Nº. 2, mas até agora não surgiram nenhumas provas disso.

Letra:

Lord Almighty,
I feel my temperature rising
Higher higher
It's burning through to my soul, yeah
 
Girl, girl, girl, girl
You gonna set me on fire, yeah
My brain is flaming
I don't know which way to go
 
'Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With burning love
 
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
I feel my temperature rising, yeah
Please, won't you help me, I'm flaming
I must be a hundred and nine
Burning, burning, burning
And nothing can cool me
I just might turn into smoke
But I feel fine
 
Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With burning love
 
It's coming closer
The flames are licking my body
Please won't you help me
I feel like I'm slipping away
It's hard to breath
And my chest is a-heaving
 
Lord Almighty,
I'm burning a hole where I lay
Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love
With burning love
Ah, ah, burning love
I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
